45 Lessons about life

From  I love some of these - they are truly brilliant and things that we should definitely keep in mind.

45 Lessons About Life
By Regina Brett, (NOT 90 years old!)

Regina writes, "The day before I turned 45, I wrote a column about the 45 lessons life taught me. I added five more lessons when I turned 50." 

She has turned these 50 Lessons into a book, God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life's Little Detours, but the first 45 lessons are listed here for your reading pleasure...

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

Sharing some divine wisdom from an awesome source

All information below comes from

I am in love with this site and the amazing resources that it offers - I highly recommend checking it out to everyone.



Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love and beauty. She brings love and healing to those around her through grace and confidence. As roses bloom and apples ripen, so does self-acceptance grow to supreme self-love.

  • Magnetism
  • Rose quartz, pink tourmaline, emerald (pink or green stones), and citrine to bring Aphrodite's gifts in abundance!
  • I am valuable
  • I walk in beauty
  • I am free to be myself, I accept myself as I am
  • I release my habit of self-criticism
  • My insecurity is replaced with wisdom
  • At my centre there is an incandescent fire
  • I release myself from harmful judgments
  • I'm the best thing that's ever happened to me
Her Story

Aphrodite is also known to the Romans as Venus. She is the goddess of doves, swans, roses, apples, arts and all things graceful, inspired and creative. According to myth, she emerged as a nymph from the waves and immediately drove almost every male god wild with desire.

Aphrodite was very much a free goddess. She revelled in indulging her appetites, which by all accounts, were as impressive as her looks.

Her Modern Energy

While it may be easy to take this too literally and judge her as amoral, her free and easy lifestyle is more appropriately interpreted as a symbol of the way in which the passion and fulfilment of artistic creativity is eternally available to everyone.

Are you having a trauma at the moment? You don't consider yourself beautiful? You're conscious of certain 'imperfections' in your appearance? Think again.

If Aphrodite is reaching you today, it may be that you are wishing to recapture the feeling of being 'red hot' and highly wanted. You're looking for the energy and confidence to flirt and with Aphrodite's inspiration and grace with you, you're guaranteed to remain in control of the consequences. Regardless of your shape or size, Aphrodite is here to help you exude a magnetic charisma which, if you allow it to express itself fully, will make you feel attractive and desirable.

Reconnect With Your Inner Aphrodite

Take 7 small pink candles, a related essence oil and a scarf. Each morning as your body is still steaming from the shower, sit in front of a mirror, and light one candle. Anoint the candle with the oil from top to bottom, and then yourself - a drop over your heart chakra, each of your wrists, and on the balls of your feet. Breathe in the scent all allow yourself to meditate for a few moments. Repeat your affirmation, or a dedication to Aphrodite:

Aphrodite goddess of love,
Bless me with your grace.
Love grows, Love flows
Love flows, Love grows

Allow the candle to burn out as you get ready for the day. Place the remaining candles and oil in the scarf until the next day, repeating the process each morning. Always remember the aura you exude is the aura you will attract: be a magnet for love by exuding self-love! You are the goddess of beauty and love.
